#2335 new enhancement

clients shouldn't need to have persistent id

Launchpad Bug:


Clients should have an anonymous mode of operation wherein they don't expose any persistent identifiers to servers. Maybe this mode could be the default?

In one accounting future, client identities would actually be necessary... but maybe there could be some blinded accounting tokens instead?
